Judith Fingard presents:
Licensed Drinking Establishments in Temperence-Era Halifax
7:30 pm, Museum of Natural History, Auditorium
1747 Summer Street, Halifax
This talk focuses on the decline of the retail liquor trade as a private enterprise in the city of Halifax between the 1880s and the imposition of prohibition during World War I.
It consists of an examination of regulations promoted by the temperance lobby to undermine the “liquor traffic” and provides a profile of the licensed liquor retailers.
Illustrations include photographs of buildings in which drink was sold and advertisements that vendors inserted in the city directories.
